17 Sustainable Development Goals To Change The World
Have you ever heard the term “sustainable development goals?,” Actually, the TPB or sustainable development goals were introduced around 2015. To be precise, it was September 25, 2015 in New York, United States.

In the general assembly of the United Nations (UN), agreed a sustainable development goal to change the world. No less than 193 countries were present and agreed to achieve these goals together by 2030.

What are the goals of sustainable development?

The Sustainable Development Goals are the basis or blueprint so that all nations in the world have one common view to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

There are many global challenges and issues that cannot be faced if we move alone. All nations in the world need to join hands to solve existing problems and obstacles, in order to overcome global challenges.

Examples include poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice, and many other global challenges.

17 sustainable development goals

The 17 sustainable development goals are as follows:

1. No poverty

Economic growth must provide sustainable employment and promote equality so that all people can live decently.

2. No hunger

The food and agriculture sectors offer key solutions for development, and are central to alleviating hunger and poverty.

3. Better health and well-being

Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages are essential to sustainable development.

4. Quality education

Education is the key to breaking the chain of poverty. Without quality education, it is impossible to eradicate poverty. Therefore, obtaining a quality education is the basis for improving people's lives and sustainable development.

5. Gender equality

The issue of gender differences still emerges in the midst of the current modernization era. Many women feel underestimated or underestimated, just because they are female.

In terms of income or salary in the office, generally men still get a higher salary than women. Gender equality is not only a basic human right, but also a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.

6. Clean water and sanitation

Clean and accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in. Meanwhile, as we know now, there are still many countries in the world that do not yet have access to proper clean water. In fact, clean water is considered a luxury because it must be purchased at an expensive price.

7. Affordable and clean energy sources

Renewable alternative energy sources are at the center of all challenges as well as great opportunities to achieve life and change the world for the better. Environmentally friendly alternative energy using the power of wind, sunlight, geothermal, or water, does not cause bad impacts like petroleum energy which produces carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.

8. Decent work and economic growth

Sustainable economic growth will require society to create conditions that enable people to have quality jobs.

9. Industry, innovation and infrastructure

These three things are closely related to each other. The industry will be able to develop if it is supported by technological innovation and adequate infrastructure. Investment in infrastructure is critical to achieving sustainable development.

10. Reducing inequality

To reduce inequality, policies must be universal in principle, taking into account the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized populations.

11. Sustainable cities and communities

There needs to be a future where cities provide opportunities for all. With access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.

12. Responsible consumption and production

Responsible and wise production and consumption.

13. Following up on climate change

Climate change is a global challenge that affects everyone, everywhere.

14. Life under the sea

Careful management of this important global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future.

15. Life on land

Manage forests sustainably, combat deforestation, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss

16. Peace, justice and strong institutions

Access justice for all, and build effective and accountable institutions at all levels.

17. Partnership

Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

Achieving sustainable development goals consciously and responsibly

In order for the sustainable development goals mentioned above to be achieved, everyone needs to work together. Not only appointing the government, but all levels of society need to play an active role.

The most important thing is to educate the public about the existence of sustainable development goals. So that everyone is more aware of the existing global issues and challenges. Starting from climate change, clean water crisis, environmental damage, to poverty alleviation.

In fact, by simply changing our lifestyle to be more environmentally friendly, we are already participating in achieving the goal of sustainable development. For example, by saving electrical energy, water, and not littering. In addition, we can switch to using electric cars which are more environmentally friendly as a means of transportation that supports daily mobility.
